Agreed. This is more like: we're ready and due for a release. I started talking to some Ubuntu
folks about it, and they were like "it might be too late" and I was like "even for bugfixes"
and the were like "maybe it's not too late for bugfixes."

Anyway, if we miss the boat, 1.0 will ship in the next Ubuntu release, and that's not too
bad (except that it has a couple of nasty bugs replicating design docs...)
